Connie's Green Grocery stocks its shelves with organic fruits and vegetables, flowering plants, and locally raised meats free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Apples, bananas, plums, kale, carrots, beets, and yams have all been reported to thrive here, as have bison burgers and pork chops with sensational stories to tell. One of the ways the shop distributes these wares is by sending parcels of healthy produce to the doorsteps of customers. Each box adds a welcome note of surprise and mystery to family dinners by unveiling an ever-changing array of greens, fruit, and veggies in different combinations every week. Specialty all-fruit or all-veggie packages are available for those who love one but not the other.
Already dedicated to the environment, Connie's Green Grocery plans to further its commitment with an upcoming aquaponic farm. This sustainable approach to food production, which allows for the cultivation of plant life alongside fish, uses less than 2% of the water a conventional farm would require.
Plato's Closet curates a collection of gently used name-brand apparel, incentivizing their customers to bring in their own quality used clothing for cash. Each week, the staff pores over piles of clothing and accessories in search of young and on-trend sweaters, dresses, shorts, and hazmat suits from popular brands. After picking out the best clothes and accessories, the staff reshelves items, priced at up to 70% off their retail value. The style-savvy staff aims to keep the shop’s stock in line with current trends and classic fashion statements, generally choosing only pieces that are 12–18 months old. Most of the available apparel comes in sizes 00–19/20 for girls and waist size 28–40 for guys.
Play It Again Sports overhauls lockers with high-quality gear and rescues gently used athletic equipment from untimely retirement. Products from brands such as Bauer, Easton, and Wilson make up an all-star lineup across each store's shelves, which are replenished daily with goods for a wide selection of sports that ranges from baseball and hockey to golf and lacrosse. Treadmills and exercise bikes equip bodies with muscular suits of armor, and pintsize and adolescent equipment arms youngsters with protective padding until they eat enough bologna to grow muscles of their own. To ensure its stock remains robust, Play It Again Sports encourages athletes to collect their lightly used gear—including treadmills—and bring it into a local store to either sell or trade.
In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts.
When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.
